But who am I kidding, I've never used ANY of the holsters for the 10 lights I own that came with holsters! But every thing about my G25C2 is fantastic. The light is top notch in every way so far. It can run on turbo for long periods, and yet it dissipates all that heat unbelievably well. Unlike the SWM T20CS, which gets hot quick and stays hot.
    I use the holster all the time. And it wouldn't close when I had the filter on. The light is nice, but the one I got, had some bad places with the coating.
    The light didn't convinced me that it was a keeper

    This is a great light. I have it in NW with all the extras. It blows away the Maelstrom X7 that I have. I like the many hidden modes and options. It also switches between the 4 modes so much more smoothly than the X7. The light with the diffuser on fits in the holster by using the 2nd snap. Very well thought out.

    I returned a Lumapower light due to many issues, then a few people told me they had bought the same light before, but didnt have most of the problems I had, so apparently there are some QC issues with some of these Chinese companies. Thats a shocker......

    But my G25C2 has been great. Although the quest I went through to get a diffuser for it seemed like something out of Lord of the Rings!

    One of my favourite lights. Looks great with the flip filter assembly. Will not fit in stock holster this way though. I use the Tn11 case.

    I found that with the lens assembly installed, the G25C2 fits perfectly into the holster if you guide it in with the hinge of the lens assembly facing forward, or toward the front of the holster. It slides in and out without binding and the flap can be closed and secured using the top snap with room to spare. Of course there's always potential for size variances in the construction of the holster.

    Note: I prefer to always keep the rubber tailstand accessory on the light, however when not in use for that purpose, I simply install it upside-down. Doing so serves three purposes for me, it's always available when I need it, it improves my overhand grip, and it allows the holster flap to close as previously described.

    As per my experience. I have no problems with the supplied holster. Just need to angle it according to the post above.

    Got this light a couple days ago and used it a bit. Really like this light and the sheath seems like good quality but I do not like the head down style as that usually makes the sheath larger. Anyone have any experience with another sheath with the G25C2 that keeps it head up?

    Of all the brands out there, two of my favorite for you to consider, that I know have models that will accommodate the G25C2 in a "bezel-up" orientation, are Ripoffs and Maxpedition.

    The Maxpedition model that I prefer due to its ability to be adjusted to a variety of lights and its incredible ruggedness is the UFBS, Since it's also an open bottom design, you can use your G25C2 in a 2x 18650 configuration. It can be attached to your belt either vertically or horizontally, and the top flap can be removed for quick deployment.

    Ripoffs have a few models that will work very well depending on your preferences, including the CO-34, CO-60, CO-86, CO-130, and CO-188. The Ripoffs belt clip is one of the better designs on the market, and the sheaths are constructed with either an extremely tough, poly web, or durable padded packcloth nylon. Some models like the CO-86 and CO-130 have an extra pocket that you could keep the G25C2's extension battery tubes, or extra batteries, or a multi-tool, etc. If a minimalist design is the goal, then I would look to the CO-34 or CO-60. Best wishes!

    Hi guys!

    My firs post here been following the tread on G25c2 and finally ordered one. Just a quick question. Do anyone have any experience with a charger I bought with it. It is a Nitecore intellicharger 4. Thoce CR123 can get quite expensive.. thats the reason I avoid lights that uses them for quite a long time. But this time i decided to buy one. Hope it was a good choice. Same with the charger... Any experience would be appreciated.

    SloFi,
    You can do a search at the top left of the page for that charger. The results will point you to threads you're looking for!

    @SloFi,

    Does yours come with a tail stand ring? I don't see that in mine and I thought it is an optional item?

    @pjandyho,
    yap, i bought a full kit. With the extension tubes, filters/diffuser. And the tailstand come with it.

    Just keep in mind. With the extension tubes installed, pocket clip and rubber cigar grip ring are quite useless because they cant be moved to "higher" position on the flashlight.

    I bought the full kit too but just don't see the tail stand ring. Mine came with all the extension tubes, colored and diffusion filters as well as the filter attachment and that's it.

    You could hook the laynard strap to the pocket clip.

    I just did that always want to have a lanyard on my flashlights. Well if they arent too big.

    @pjandyho
    Thats weird.. I thought it came with all models..? maybe you could write to Eagletac.. They should send you one. Otherwise are you happy with yours G25c2?

    pjandyho,
    Contact your vendor or Eagletac. The tail-stand ring is standard on any version. I'm still on the fence about this light and for the asking price I would want every piece of kit that's due!

    I got it from GoingGear. Not sure if the ring is important. I think I prefer having the lanyard ring on.

    I like it because it protects the main switch. Otherwise its quite "exposed".

    It seems they updated the g25c2 with the mark II version!! Look at the eagletac website. What do you think about it?

    Maybe Eagletac will lower the price on their current stock G25C2's; if they do might pick up another one.

    I use my lights at the middle lumen output or lower.

    But these max figures would be with 2x18650s yeah? I expect that with one 18650, even with the MKII model, you wouldn't get much more than 700ANSI lumens on high.

    There website states:

    "Ultimate output from two CR123A cells / single 18650" so I shot off a e-mail asking if that's on 1 or 2 18650s. If it's 1 I'll be in for sure.
